WRIT 381 - Writing for the Web

3 credits
Students address the special opportunities and challenges of writing for online publication. In addition to developing the general skills of writing, editing, and rewriting, they develop those writing skills particularly useful for Web-based self-publishing (building one’s own website) and publishing through existing Internet publications. Through a series of exercises, they write features and “”soft”” news, Op-Ed letters, first-person essays, profiles, and reviews fitted for an online audience, while also learning how to pitch story ideas and work under deadlines. They also learn how to take advantage of the collaborative processes by experiencing the brainstorming process of editorial meetings.
